A Clifford Chance team advised ING Bank N.V. as sole global coordinator and bookrunner on the accelerated bookbuild offering of ordinary shares in the capital of Dutch listed company Kendrion N.V. Kendrion develops, manufactures and markets high-quality electromagnetic systems and components for industrial and automotive applications.
